Thread: What is the difference between these two lights?

  1. #1

    Default What is the difference between these two lights?

    Hi,

    I'm looking to replace my old Olight S15 and found a similar (I think) flashlight.

    It's listed as the: On The Road M5 1197 Lumens 3Modes Magnetic Tail Portable EDC LED Flashlight.

    It's a Chinese light and I have my doubts about the lumens, but I'm willing to take a shot.

    Is anyone here familiar with this flashlight?

    It comes in two "designs"-------- XM-L2 5C and XM-L2 U3.

    What is the difference? Is one better than the other?

    Thank you.

    paikeam,

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me. That's what this forum is all about. Or should be.

    Are you serious? I can't tell.

    If you are serious, please seek the help of a mental health professional.

    Surely there's some sort of therapy, or perhaps a medication, that may help you with your tragic affliction.

    Looking for and attempting to promote conflict where there is none must be a terrible and unfulfilling way to live.

    May God help you.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Thanks for proving my point.

    Further off-topic bickering will be considered trolling. Please let's move on constructively here.

    Quick search on google would have answered your question. No need to be snippy with other members imo.

    boo5ted,

    The first thing I did was enter "XM-L2 5C XM-L2 U3" in Google.

    Do it yourself. You'll see Google offers no clue, at least not one I could interpret.

    Snippy? Snippy???

    MOI?????

    boo5ted, I am reporting your post to a moderator.

    I think you're trying to tempt me into saying something immoderate here in order to get me banned.

    But I'm not going to fall for it.

    Tsk, tsk.

    OP has his answer above. Leaving this open serves no purpose at this point.
